I’m real proud of this one, y’all. To celebrate Chatty AF’s 100th episode, the whole team got together to talk about the criminally underappreciated shoujo space opera epic, Jupiter Ascending. Join us as we discuss female power fantasies, isekai story beats, Academy Award-Winner Eddie Redmayne, and whether the film is Good Actually, Bad Actually, or somewhere in between.

Vrai, Caitlin, and I have returned to give you the skinny on more manga, this time focusing on single-volume titles! Our cheesy segment titles are back with a vengeance and we’ve brought the Big Salt Energy for this one. Also: lots and lots of good queer manga, for lovers of cuteness and drama alike.
